The Daytona Solisti Chamber Orchestra’s annual "Beethovenfest" concert on March 26 will celebrate Ludwig Van Beethoven with the first full-length orchestral piece the composer wrote, in 1789-1790 when he was 20: Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 19. 

The performance will feature a transcription of the original orchestral accompaniment for string chamber orchestra.

The work will feature pianist Dr. Michael Rickman, an internationally acclaimed pianist and former professor at Stetson University, where he taught for 34 years before his retirement in 2017.
